Hands gain callous,

Strength from muscles,

Work is done.

A new cloud drifts by a familiar hill,

A small lizard scurries over your boot,

Stop a moment and breathe your fill,

Let your center take its root.


Working, acting to further your goals, is important.  Vastly important. However, it is also important to take the small, transient moments in which you remember who you are and why your goals matter, and savor them.  Drink in every last detail.  Memorize the what you see, touch what’s before you if you can, name every scent, and taste the words that would describe this moment before you say them, or let them fall silent in your mind.  When the moment passes, it’s gone forever.
